Bryce Young to not work with Panthers first team when whole team arrives next week

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and former Alabama quarterback, Bryce Young will get a lot of reps with the Carolina Panthers’ second team next week.

The Panthers’ head coach Frank Reich spoke about the Panthers’ plan for Young next week during an interview Saturday.

“Bryce will get a lot of reps as we’ve said,” Reich said. “When he’s ready, when it’s best for the team, that is when we’ll look to make a transition. We come back out Monday, Andy will be taking reps with the ones, Bryce will be with the twos, but Bryce is going to get a lot of reps, kely even get a few more than Andy, just as the new guy. The good thing with Andy is he’s logged a lot in the last couple of weeks and with Andy as a savvy veteran, he still needs to work. But we’ll focus on getting Bryce as the younger player, focused on getting him as many reps as we can.”

The Panthers are looking to smoothly transition Young into the NFL.
